I have Dell Inspiron 15 7537 , from 2013, and Intel Wireless N-7260 card (that's single band, not dual band version). And I wanted to upgrade WiFi card with some newer, dual band model. Would Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 be compatible with my system?

Would Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 be compatible with my system? Or if not which one of the newer Intel WiFi card models would be?

 

System has

 

Intel i7-4500U processor,

 

16GB RAM,

 

Intel HD Graphics 4400 / NVidia GeForce GT750M

 

Don't know if there's anything else relevant about system you need to know?
